How to get alerted when a discussion post is added

Sep 2, 2006 at 11:30 PM
The title of this question pretty much says it all. I want to receive some sort of notification or alert whenever a post is made on any of the discussion forums - how do I get that?

At the moment, the best way to do that is to subscribe to the RSS feed for your project. When on any of your project's pages, click on the Orange syndication icon (it looks like a dot with quarter circles around it). This will take you to the RSS feed for your project.

For example, the RSS feed for this project is:

http://www.codeplex.com/Project/ProjectRss.aspx?ProjectName=CodePlex

I thought so but it's not working for my project:

http://www.codeplex.com/Project/ProjectRss.aspx?ProjectName=SUB

So there's either a really aggressive caching issue - because some of those posts were added yesterday - or there's some other issue at play.

I'm not sure I see what you're seeing.

In your forum, there are 6 posts, and all 6 of them are in your RSS feed.

There's definitely something going on because my RSS always seems to be anywhere up to a day behind:

What's the caching timeout that you guys have on the RSS feed data?

OK, this isn't working. All I need is a way to notify all the members unsolicitedly at the same time.
Is it that hard? Discussion postings aren't being notified.
Need a solution thanks
